What will I be doing?

Volunteers are vital to help with the activities, shows and programs that take place in the Explorium, the Willow Theatre, and at Special Events. Each area has it's own opportunities. Please visit the links for specific information about each area.


Who can volunteer?

Volunteers ages 14+ are welcomed and encouraged to join us. Sugar Sand Park might be the right place for you if you:

  • Enjoy working with others                                                                         
  • Have a friendly and outgoing demeanor
  • Need community service hours
  • Love to be involved in your community


I'm In! What's next?

  • The Explorium and Willow Theatre positions require an interview process.  
  • Special Events do not require an interview, but actors for the Shriek Week Haunted House require an audition.
  • All volunteers participate in a mandatory training and/or orientation in their area prior to beginning their time with us.  This training/orientation provides an overview of the facility, expectations in the specific area, as well as policies and procedures to help prepare you with pertinent tools and information.
  • Once all the forms are processed, volunteers are also encouraged to participate in other areas, i.e. if you are an Explorium or Theatre volunteer and would like to be involved in Special Events, that's great!

Sugar Sand Park is operated by the City of Boca Raton. Volunteers will need to complete a City Volunteer forms packet, including the background check for ALL volunteers. Complete the forms, indicating that you are interested in working Special Events at Sugar Sand Park, and return it to Sugar Sand Park Community Center. We will work with the City's Human Resources Office to process paperwork.

Volunteers 18 + years will also need to meet with the City of Boca of Raton Volunteer Coordinator, at City Hall, to receive a badge once the forms have been processed.
